“Go do something crazy.” That’s the spirit driving Ali Butler-Glenesk, an average runner who woke up one morning and hatched the ultimate challenge for herself: Become the fastest known woman to run across her home state of California. What did that mean exactly? Running 262 miles in 10 days east to west across the state. That’s about a marathon a day for ten days in a row. Quickly realizing she couldn’t go at it alone, Ali assembled her two middle-of-the-packer best friends to run it with her. This is the story of a rag-tag lady triad out to prove that you don’t have to be an expert to go for something extraordinary.
